We're staying 2 nights pre-cruise and 1 night post-cruise in Ft. Lauderdale at the end of July and are looking for the best fried chicken and bbq (preferably baby backs) and great ice cream. Any and all recommendations appreciated!
Baby back ribs are a cookout classic, and this smoked version is extra delicious. First flavored with a rub of brown sugar and spices like paprika, chili powder, and ground mustard, the ribs get a wonderful smokiness when grilled over applewood chips, and a final boost from barbecue sauce. Yum!
Easy BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs
You don't have to baby-sit a smoker to get perfect barbecue baby back ribs. You can coat these with a spicy-sweet rub and oven roast them while you make an easy BBQ sauce. Then finish the ribs on the grill (up to 2 days later), where the barbecue sauce caramelizes into a glaze and the ribs get a hint of smoke. A Chowhound BBQ favorite.
Save the sweats and backward baseball cap for the stadium. When you're eating at a nice restaurant, dress the part. WTF Are You Doing?! gives chefs the chance to gleefully re-enact the awful behavior they see in their dining rooms every day.
In the latest episode of Roots, Jason Stratton tells how he went from studying avant-garde poetry in Spain to becoming the award-winning chef of Seattle's Spinasse, Artusi, and Aragona. Roots takes a deep biographical look into the world's most influential chefs to reveal their inspirations, Ancestry.com style except not really. **UPDATE: Stratton recently announced his departure from his killer restaurants, citing a need for a sabbatical out in the great wide world. Dude is gonna read some books and nod thoughtfully at art like whoa.
